Cancer Research at Bath (CR@B) is a unique network between the University and the NHS Royal United Hospital Trust. Our mission is to facilitate interaction between departments and institutes, multidisciplinary research and provide excellent opportunities for training for its members. It is also our mission to interact with fundraisers and industry, and generally raise awareness of all aspects of cancer.
This blog aims to demonstrate research activities in CR@B, promote cancer research in and around Bath, and raise cancer research awareness both on campus and in the local community.
We are very excited to welcome four Student Volunteer Communicators (SVC) to join the CR@B team. They are
I’m Emma, a second year Natural Scientist majoring in Biochemistry. I’m hoping to go to the States next year on placement, in either the neuroscience or cancer research field. I’ve always been interested in cancer research, but my involvement really took off after a summer internship at Cambridge researching the BRCA1 protein (linked with Breast Cancer).
I'm Ellie, a second year undergraduate studying Biochemistry. Although I have been interested in cancer research for several years now, my interest was particularly piqued this year after taking a unit on cancer biology, and hope to go on an industrial placement in a lab in the field next year.
I'm Alex, a 4th year Pharmacy student at the university and will be going to do my pre-registration year with Boots in London after graduation. I became interested in cancer research shortly after starting at university, and have a particular interest in the development of new drugs.
